Insomnia.

As darkness shrouds ,

the mind dissects the  night,  

 Rummaging through the scattered  

hills, valleys, foliage and caverns. 

Where  stoic  eyes lie wide open  on pillows

glaring    at the unfathomable  darkness,

giving   company  to the glittering

and not yet glittering  stars.

Riding on the wings of anticipation,

flipping through  distant shores,

I struggle to locate you in various destinations

Of the map etched in my mind

To quietly  slip through and  find    

a  remote corner  in a lobe of your brain

Or a space  in your throbbing  heart chambers.

    A compelling description of a lonely soul thinking longingly of his or her partner during a dark and sleepless night
    The poem is full of inexorable yearning
